Money is a hot topic that often becomes a source of arguments for couples.
More to the point: how one spends their money can generate a lot of criticism from their spouse, especially when the budget is tight.
But if there are men reading this, listen up: smart husbands don’t mess with their wife’s hair care budget. Here’s why…
Women generally have to pay more than men for insurance, clothes, personal care, and a lot of other stuff, including haircuts. A “pink tax” is what many are calling it—an unfair situation just like the gender pay gap. In fact, The Gazette reported on February 15th that a class action lawsuit was filed in Montreal against eight companies for engaging in discriminatory pricing practices.
So, men can criticise their better half’s spending on jewelry, shoes or purses all they want (just like women can question the need for new tools or a bigger TV), but when it comes to hair care expenses, that should be off limits. True, some women make an obsession of their hair; that $200 haircut for one night out is a bit overboard. However, most people are pretty reasonable, wouldn’t you agree?
